Guess what? It's Monday. But not just any Monday. It's the last monday of working... Starting next Monday (Labour Day) I will officially be a student again, learning all the ins and outs of broadcast journalism, and specialized reporting. I really can't wait any longer. Of course because I only have TWO days of school, I will have to get a job of some sort. Hopefully I can have a cool job, but I'll probably be back in retail for the time being. That's okay, one day my hard work will pay off. That much I do know.
So in the mean time, I have this week to contend with. I am extremely busy with getting everything organized for Alberta on Friday. I have to pick clothes up from the cleaners, and pick jeans up from getting altered (the joys of being 5 feet tall), getting my hair done, saying bye to all of my friends as they slowly go back to school, packing for my trip, yoga, yoga party, and FINALLY a spray tan; which I'll have to squeeze in somewhere (I'm the palest I've ever been in the summer!) I really don't know how I'll manage to fit everything in, but hopefully I will.
Let's move on to the always lovely subject of the male gender. Who can ever understand their intentions? Like, how am I supposed to know if he wants a relationship.. or just some action, or a friendship? Why text me and ask me what I'm doing, and then when I reply, don't text back for another 2 days... it just makes no sense at all. Anyway, this one guy I'm talking about specifically, SEEMS like the nicest guy I've ever met. But is it a facade? How do I know? He's blond (not usually my type) he's in a band (also not usually my type), and SO nice. He likes to party, he knows how to have a good time, AND is nice. Is it really possible? A part of me thinks I'm falling for him, but then he just up and confuses me again. Really, I wish they would just flat out say what they meant. But then I guess there wouldn't be a chase? And all girls love a chase (let's keep the chase simple though, no convoluted games please). But remember the boy that just left for school in the States? Well sometimes I catch myself thinking about him. Why? And.. annoying.
My best friend is HOME for a week. She was at camp (being a counselor) all summer long, and has a week at home before she goes back to Laurier. Shoot. BUT the good news is, my birthday is fast approaching. And for my birthday weekend, I'll be at Laurier celebrating not only my birthday, but Homecoming as well. That should be quite the weekend. Not to remind you or anything, but my birthday is October 4th. (Let's not forget okay?)
One more thing I wanted to say... remember my driver friend that I met at the Adrian Grenier event that wanted to hire me for TIFF. Haha, well turns out he was just being charismatic. Defintiely like me to get sucked into that ploy.. oh well, it was a fun thought to entertain for a week.
Anyway, I just bought a new book: Committed, by Elizabeth Gilbert. Recognize the name? Yep, it's the Author of my other fave: Eat Pray Love. It's the continuation of her love story with Philipe. Oh I just can't wait to start reading, SO I need to finish this blog, and get to my reading.
OH WAIT! One more thing. I have found, the most amazing telephone for my room. It's a classic french, rotary phone from 1947. I need to buy it, its quite stunning.
Until next time,

Gooood morning fellow bloggers! How are you today? I hope you’re terrific. For starters, it’s Friday. Also, the weather is finally looking up. It’s been feeling awfully like fall in the past few days, but today, there is a high of 27/28 degrees CELCIUS. SO warm for the last week in August.
The other exciting thing is that the countdown is on for my departure to Alberta. Seven days exactly. I can’t wait. Seven (probably long) days until I’m horseback riding through the Rockies and taking a dip in the hot springs. Unfortunately for my bikini body, my brain has been lovin’ the food a little too much.. only 5 lbs too much. But still, five pounds is five pounds.
OKAY OKAY. I’ve been trying to blog for a couple of minutes without jumping for joy and screaming.. I thought I should start off slow, but now I’m far too excited to keep blogging about mundane things.
TWOOOOO exciting things happened to me this week. ACTUALLY THREE!!! So, first I went to a screening of Adrian Grenier’s Teenage Paparazzo, where not only did I watch the most amazing film ever, but I also met him. I came up with what I thought was the wittiest possible question. Being that he was from New York, and clearly liked baseball, I needed to know: Yankees or Mets? …. His answer: “Yankees, Obviously!” How cute eh? Not only is he philosophical, a genius, artistically motivated, and freakin’ gorgeous, but he’s a YANKEES fan. Why, is this guy perfect? Are all celebrities perfect, or is it just a figment of my imagination? I’m going to go with the latter.
Anyway, exciting moment number two: Same night.. I met Adrian Grenier’s driver. Who probably sarcastically, offered me a job to work with him during TIFF. Like seriously? What a good way to get into the media business! I’m slowing working my way in, so hopefully I can jump right in some time this year.
Finally, exciting moment number three: I tweeted the Blue Jays yesterday, as I do every day. I love the Blue Jays, and I love Twitter. So it only makes sense that I would Tweet them errr’day (weird?) of my life. So, it was completely unexpected when they TWEETED me back. Like, WHAT? Probably made my whole day, if not week. I’m not sure if you know, but I watch/listen/follow every Blue Jays game.. the only time I don’t is when I’m at the cottage and have no cell service. So, the most exciting part you ask? “Great blog by the way!” … I squealed with excitement. Sarcasm? Maybe. Do I care? No. :)
I have some more things to update you on (obviously boy drama/friend drama). But today, I was completely and utterly devoted to Adrian Grenier and his beautiful film Teenage Paparazzo and to MY beautiful Blue Jays (with Bautista hitting is 41st homerun of the season, and is 100th of his career!)
Until next time,
Mr. Famous, xo

Word of the day: Reciprocity;
Good morning all!
I’m writing this entry quite early in the day (a whopping 9:20 am) but not posting it until quite a bit later as I’m using a work computer to write. It’s just that I have so many things on my mind I can’t risk waiting until later and forgetting all of my thoughts from this morning.
It’s only Tuesday and I can’t even imagine going through the rest of today, let alone the rest of the week. I’m just dying for it to be the weekend, and better yet, the end of summer (Oh, I know.. I really am saying that). It’s just that I have tons of fall clothes (boots, moccasins, sweaters and blazers) that I just can’t wait to wear, school begins (only two days a week) and I’m going to Alberta for eight days.. OH RIGHT, and it’s my birthday! How could I forget that!? Finally leaving my teen years behind.
The only other thing getting me through at least Tuesday and Wednesday is the fact that I’m going to see John FREAKING Mayer tomorrow at the Molson Amphitheater. I have amazing seats, and going with some amazing people. It will be my third time seeing John (we’re on a first name basis obv) in a 12-month period and quite frankly not even close to enough times. He’s so amazing live; just him and his guitar. Can’t. Wait. Any. Longer. Please, Wednesday… come now.
I hope some of you are newspaper readers… if you are, and you read the Toronto Star frequently, you’ll know the article that I’m talking about when I mention this word: Coyote. Apparently, at a camp ground in Cape Bretton, Nova Scotia, a 16-year old girl was sleeping outside (who the hell knows why) and woke up to a coyote biting her head. Ever since the 19 year old girl went hiking alone through the woods last year and was attacked my coyotes, people are out to get them. ESPECIALLY in Cape Bretton; where they have captured in between 8 and TEN coyotes in the past year. CAN YOU believe that!? They are wild animals.. what do people expect from them? We go into THEIR habitat, or home, and then get angry when they get curious and attack us? How is that even fair? IF someone came into your home, would you not show them the same curiosity and hostility? It’s just ridiculous that people are astounded by the way coyotes are reacting to an influx of people in their homes. If you are a petite person, and going out for a hike alone, or sleeping outside alone, who’s to say that a skunk, raccoon, or bear isn’t going to come along and take a sniff, or bite? No one is out killing skunks and raccoons. Probably because their damage isn’t as bad… but I have news for you: They’re tiny little things. Again, if you’re going to go out alone, in the woods where there are tons of wild animals, bring something to protect you. A stick maybe? Or a horn, or bear spray. Something, that gives you an advantage. Anyway, I’m done ranting about coyotes.
A few other things that I need to mention before I sign off are: Project Texas, and date night (yikes).
Project Texas is my fun way of saying Project Austin. Austin is a guy that I have a super big crush on, that I need to conquer before the summer is over. I’m not sure what I mean by conquer, maybe kiss? I don’t know, but I know I’m not satisfied leaving it the way I have at the past few parties we’ve seen each other at. So hopefully this weekend, I make some good progress into my assignment.
Date night: I have a date. Lord, I think I need to say it a few times for it to sink in. I. Have. A. Date. First REAL date in over a year. I forgot how to date, what to say… how to act, OH god. I hope I’m witty, and coy, and cute, and flirtatious.
Anyway, I have a few more things to tell you but this is really too long now. Remind me to tell you about Audrey Hepburn, Omar Khadr, and the Iphone. Please don’t forget to remind me.
Until next time,
Mr. Famous, xo
